This is incredibly silly!

Either it’s just too much, or I should’ve started working on them earlier.

We all know the answer there. Doesn’t take away from the fact that I didn’t plan my time very well, but yeah, it’s definitely a lot. And by “a lot” I mean two documents. That’s two rather sizable documents though. And all that to be allowed to do my internship… by school. As if they have any say in the matter by now, pshh. Where do they think they are? In a position of authority? Hah!

In all seriousness though, I spent a couple hours in the weekend writing these things, and they’re still not done. A minimum page requirement of ten doesn’t sound too hard, but those things just don’t seem to fill themselves up! The task is easy enough; write this and that about the company, write this and that about your project, and then write this and that on how it all relates to your education. I haven’t gotten to it yet, but that last one sounds tricky. If instead it asked me to describe how it doesn’t relate to my study because I haven’t learned jack squat, then I’d be done in zero point three hours!

Again, all joking aside, ideally I’m handing this in on Wednesday. I don’t have it finished yet and my supervisor needs to take a look at it before I hand it in as well. The teacher in charge of checking up on me is a cool enough guy though, I don’t think there’ll be much trouble over it if I’m a couple hours late, but eh. It feels bad but oddly justified to be slacking on the “job” like this. Who the hell does school assignments when you’ve got a full-time job to pour effort into anyway?

School could’ve just said, “let us check your stuff out”, seen my amazing, well-built and already quite functional application, and given me an A.

    It’d be nice if schools did that but they don’t. 10 pages is about 5000 words. How easy that is depends really on what you’ve got to write. Just remove all contractions and insert flowery language to make sentences longer.
